I am a web developer and I am looking at hosting solutions.
I currently use a basic Digital Ocean droplet with weekly backups to host my site and do a few things with DNS.
I also register my domains separately, with different registrars and point the NS to my droplet. I am also well versed in Linux OS and System Admin.
However, I am looking at expanding business operations, potentially needing dedicated servers, to host services that I’ve developed, hosting for clients (web mainly, and sometimes mail, etc.), as well as other solutions for myself (Git repositories, mail servers, etc.).
My main question is, what would be the best solution for me, in particular hosting for my clients?
I am not a fan of cPanel reseller accounts, like most digital agencies use, and prefer to have strict control over the servers, as though they are in the room with me. It would only be managed by myself or people who have experience with server management (literally, CLI use only).
Could anyone help me get my thoughts in order, suggest recommendations, and what could be the best case use?
I’ve tried to read up on DigitalOcean’s Reseller, but I’ve had limited success in understanding it (or contacting support).
